The five must have power tools list could use a little tweaking. An air hammer isn't really a "power tool" and wouldn't be used by the average person (I was given one over 20 years ago and I've never had a need to use it). The shrub tool has a specific use for someone sculpting hedges, but I wouldn't consider it a "must have" by any means.

A drill/driver kit is a very good choice, and although Craftsman is my favorite, I would probably recommend a more affordable Ryobi that would serve anyone, and has many other tools you can use with the same battery.

A power sharpener would be nice, but not a must have. I do like the air compressor, but I really don't think of it as a power tool.
